In an exclusive interview for ecopolitic.ro, E.S. S.E. M. Amhar Azeth, Ambassador of Indonesia in Romania, detailed the two important events hosted by Indonesia: The G-20 Summit and the World Conference for Creative Economy (WCCE). The Ambassador also expressed Indonesia’s desire and intention to make Romania and Constanta a Hub for Indonesian products.
„We want to make Romania and Constanta a Hub for Indonesian products, but this is quite difficult to achieve, because all goods entering the European continent already have a certain system, namely a general maritime transport established through Rotterdam, so that a change in this meaning is really a bit difficult to achieve, but we will continue to make efforts to find ways to make Constanta Port a gateway for Indonesian and Southeast Asian products to the Europe and Central Asia region. This is our intention and our desire, of Indonesia”, E.S. S.E. M. Amhar Azeth said.
The Ambassador of Indonesia in Romania specified that G20 is an Economic Summit and not a Defense Summit.
„We hope that the Indonesian Government’s plans to hold the G-20 High-Level Summit in November in Bali will be realized, as this Summit is a challenge for Indonesia, whose turn is to hold the G-20 Presidency, amid the outbreak of a crisis between Ukraine and Russia. At the same time, we know that this crisis in Ukraine did not suddenly appear by itself. This crisis in Ukraine represents an explosion in which the global influence held by the United States receives a challenge from Russia, and Mainland China together, which becomes a great challenge for Indonesia having the role of the G-20 Presidency. However, the Government of Indonesia has made every effort and is doing its best to bring all G-20 members together. Many times the Government of Indonesia, especially the President, stated that the G-20 is an Economic Summit, and not a Defense Summit. (…) The G-20 Summit is linked to another event in Bali called the World Conference for Creative Economy (WCCE). This is part of the activity at the ministerial level and we, as a friendly country, have sent an official invitation to the Government of Romania in this regard. I invited the Minister of Research and the Minister of Economy of Romania, but the respective ministers being very busy sent an official letter to the Government of the Republic of Indonesia informing them that, unfortunately, they will not be able to participate in the World Conference for Creative Economy”, E.S. S.E. M. Amhar Azeth, said.
